SCIENCE STUDIO: Nuclear Energy

  In a rebroadcast from March 14, 2010, Keith talks with Heino Nitsche, a nuclear chemist at the Department of Chemistry, the University of California at Berkeley.  Heino believes we should put aside the unnecessary fears many of us have about nuclear energy.  He talks about controlling the fission process so that it simply produces energy and doesn't turn into a bomb.  Heino also explains how nuclear waste can be recycled as fuel instead of being stored underground for thousands of years.
